The 2021 Eurovision Song Contest has just finished with Maneskin’s “Zitti e Buoni’” winning the first prize. It means that Italy will organize the next show. Let’s take a look at all the cities to host Eurovision 2022.
Italy is celebrating its long-awaited victory in the Eurovision Song Contest. In the grand final that took place on May 22, Italian band Maneskin rocked in televoting and placed first with 524 points. Maneskin’s victory has become the country’s best result since 1990 – last year when Italy won the contest.
Now, Italy has to prepare for the 2020 Eurovision. Following the rules, the winning country is hosting the next show. Which cities have already offered their services? Let’s take a look at all volunteers and define the top-3 most possible ESC venues following online sportsbooks in Italy,
All Italian cities to host Eurovision 2022
Hosting Eurovision is not only prestigious but also highly profitable as it attracts many tourists and music fans. That’s why many Italian cities have already expressed their desire to host the show in 2022. As of end of May, the volunteers are the following:
- Reggio Emilia
Which cities from the list have the best chances to host Eurosvison 2022? Online gambling sites in Italy highlight top-3 places – what are they?
Milan, the capital of fashion and art, is a number-one favorite destination for Eurovision fans. According to the early-bird predictions, Milan will host the next song contest due to many reasons.
First of all, Eurovision has never taken place in Milan before. After Gigliola Cinquetti and Toto Cutugno’s triumphs in 1964 and 1990 respectively, the next ESC shows took place in Rome and Naples. Milan can be a good alternative to these cities as it is a very popular tourist destination in Italy.
What is also important, Milan can boast a great location and has the Mediolanum Forum arena with a 12700 capacity. All this makes this city the main favorite in the Eurovision 2022 race.
Surely, Rome is among the volunteering cities to host Eurovision 2022. The capital of Italy has already organized a well-staged show in 1991. According to Bwin, the city is ready to welcome music fans once again after Maneskin’s victory.
As the next Eurovision venue, Rome has many advantages. It’s a capital – what else can we add? It has a pretty good location, infrastructure, and is adored by tourists. Rome has numerous tourist attractions and landmarks that can keep guests entertained for a long time. Finally, it has several stadiums of a big capacity, so arranging space for viewers will not be a problem.
An unexpected top-3 candidate to host Eurovision 2022 is Sanremo. This northwestern Italian city with a population of 55,000 people looks like an underdog in comparison to Milan and Rome, so why should it host the next song contest?
The thing is that Eurovision is mostly based on the famous Sanremo Music Festival. Back in the 1950s, the very first ESC borrowed a lot from the Italian festival, so it is considered the “father of Eurovision”’. Therefore, holding the 66th Eurovision Song Contest in Sanremo will be some kind of tribute to the city and Italy as well.
